Me I’m wondering when Americans will begin to recognize that what is happening is not just a failure of a President, but a failure of the system.
How can you have a democracy that is so subject to the whims of a single man?
No one agrees with Trump on so many things, and yet they are now coming to pass.
Look at what he is implementing: an end to trade. Racist immigration policy. Massive, unfunded spending. The end of alliances with other democracies. War with everybody.
How can one man do so much damage? What sort of a system allows it?
The White House chaos is nothing less or more than his effort to find people who agree with him- when, of course, there are no such people, because he is a party of one. No one agrees with him, because he’s nuts. The mad emperor makes his pronouncements which are senseless, and the courtiers try to make sense of them. And fail.
I’m reminded of Woody Allen’s dictator from the movie “Bananas”. “From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish.”
When Trump declares that the official language of the United States will be Swedish, what will the Republicans do?
Of course they will fall in line.
No parliamentary system would ever fall into this abyss. A Prime Minister is constrained, and would be removed for this sort of insanity.
Only a King can’t be removed.
Or a President.
The madness of King Don.
